Fundraising for Wishlist

Find out more about how you can get involved, and where the money you raise will go.



Oaklea’s Wishlist fund is maintained solely by fundraising and donations. If you would like to raise money for a great cause which benefits people living in Cumbria, Lancashire, County Durham and Northumberland, get in touch today!

A Wishlist grant can be up to £500. Previous grants have helped to fund extra care for family holidays; specialist software and equipment; and assistance to families who really need it.

Here you’ll find ideas and resources to help you get started.

Thinking of getting involved?

There are lots of different ways you can raise money, whatever your interests.

Whether you want to plan a fundraising event or push yourself in a personal challenge, one of the first things to do is set yourself a target. This can be as ambitious or as modest as you like, and you can always adjust it as you go along.

Put your own spin on something tried and tested like a coffee morning, or get creative and do your own thing.

Fundraising online

Raising money with the help of your family and friends couldn’t be easier.

You can set up a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving so that your supporters can sponsor you online. This takes away the responsibility of collecting money after your event or challenge. You can add any sponsor money you collect onto your running total so you can easily keep track.

It is completely free to use, and you can keep it up to date with photos and updates for your supporters to see!

Would you like to find out more? We can call you back.

Simply provide us a few details and we’ll call you at a time to suit you.
